Starck Eyes glasses

brand information

Collaborating together, Alain Mikli and Philippe Starck released their new concept of eyewear at the Silmo Optical Industry Exhibition in 1996. This concept is designed to represent the next millennium in eyewear. Their combined creativity and talent has given rise to the idea of biovision. "Eyeglasses inspired by the human being". 1998 saw more styles, colours and the addition of the half eye.

The Starck Eyes frames' hinge, the successor to the conventional screw hinge, is a biomechanical articulation designed like a human micro-clavicle. Inspired by the arm's natural intelligence, it shares the same multi-directional freedom of movement as the human shoulder. The secret of its strength: a tendon made of braided composite fibre that can withstand tensile loadings of up to 80kg.

Iris Optical has carried Starck Eyes frames since 2003, and its popularity has increased dramatically as word has spread.

For customers in the UK, these frames are stocked in our London SE1 (Tower Bridge), Richmond TW9 and London E1 (City, close to Spitalfields Market) stores. For customers outside of London England, these glasses can also be ordered by phone, and we can also repair your own Starck Eyes frames.
